Tomorrow, Tomorrow . . . High School Musical Is Only A Day Away

IMG_1740.JPGphoto-385This weekend, the Mineral Point High School takes over the Mineral Point Opera House to present the classic musical “Annie.”

Starring as Annie is Elise Powers who, with her natural curls, was born to play this role. (Shown at left is Elise in the Annie wig and at right, is Elise at age 3.)

Elise is one of those Mineral Pointers who make this the Rockwellian place that it is.  For example, look at her working at the Red Rooster.


Or, being the prom queen last year.


Or being on TV to cheer on the Pointer boys basketball team at the Kohl Center.


Come out this weekend and cheer on Elise — and the rest of the cast — of Annie.

Speaking of the rest of the cast, here’s the full list.
